A Christmas Baby by Derek Webster from
Shine on Star of Bethlehem
`I am looking for God, where is he?' asked the little girl.
But the Philosopher's words were too difficult for her for he said:
`Scan the world.
You will not observe Him whom you seek.
He is called "One not seen".
Listen to all things.
You will not hear Him whom you seek.
He is called "The Silent One".
Seize what is there.
You will not grasp Him whom you seek.
He is called "One untouched"'
But a mother smiled. Taking the child in her arms, she parted the straw and showed her the new-born baby.
Whoever would have thought that blogging could produce so many and genuine friendships? I've really enjoyed this year. Thank you all!
Much love for Christmas and 2006.
